Philips, Accenture examining Google Glass

Philips and Accenture announced their test of a proof of concept which seamlessly transfers Philips’ IntelliVue patient monitoring data into a Google Glass display. The test is on how a surgeon could simultaneously view vital signs data while performing surgery and not having to turn away. In addition, the surgeon could consult with doctors in other locations in real time. Ready of course is a glossy YouTube video simulation (02:57). For the trend-spotters, it confirms Big Company interest in the potential of Glass for medicine; it follows on the Glassy developments moving through the Palomar Health/Qualcomm incubator [TTA 26 July] and Rock Health’s Augmedix earlier this week and 26 August.
